GNOCCHI
(Potato Dumplings with Tomato Sauce)

Active Work Time 30 minutes; Total Prep Time 1 hour
Serves 8

Sorrento Cooking School a) 1 kilo potatoes (yellow flesh; Yukon Gold)
b) 600 grams all purpose flour, plus extra
c) 1 egg
d) Dash nutmeg, grated
e) Water
f) 3 tablespoons olive oil
g) 2 liters pre-prepared tomato sauce
h) 400 grams mozzarella cheese, cut into small chunks
i) ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
l) Fresh basil for garnish



1. Cook whole potatoes with skin in boiling water over high heat until very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain; set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove skin from potatoes with fingers.

2. Put potatoes through a ricer to create tiny pieces or mash.

3. On flat work surface create flour well.

4. Add eggs, nutmeg and potatoes to center. Blend together with hands until ingredients are completely mixed and form compact dough. If dough does not hold together, add additional flour. Knead for 3 minutes.

5. On floured surface, cut dough into long strips. Using both hands, roll each piece into long rods about 5 centimeters in diameter. Cut into 1- centimeter cubes.

6. Hold fork in right hand; press cubes against tines just hard enough to make characteristic ridges; flip downward, off the fork to create elongated shell shape.

7. On floured breadboard, position gnocchi so they don’t stick together.

8. Fill large pot with cold water; add olive oil; set aside.
